, i think, well, because we have the best damn navy in the world. this was not an extravagant or hyper bolic statement t. was simply a statement of fact. it was a fact that not only i knew. it was a fact which other nations understood. even one carrier battle group had more military fire power than any other nation's entire navy, and we had two of them on the way to taiwan. so, i was confident that no one was going to challenge the fleet that we were sending there. this -- and in fact, they did not challenge it even before our two carrier battle ships arrived in taiwan, the crisis was over and the maneuvers had been subsided. this positive result was possible because of the military capability of our navy and because both carrier battle groups were battle ready and able to steam towards their destination in less than 24 hours. so, why were we able to respond so effectively? certainly one important reason, because the technology in our ships was the best in the world. the results are true, that the training and the spirit of our sailors was superb. and we had absolutely first-class lea

as early as sunday putting upward pressure on the price of gas. some navy ships stationed near virginia beach have been ordered out to sea to ride out the storm. last year, hurricane irene caused the loss of power for more than six million households in the mid-atlantic and the northeastern u.s. forecasters say sandy could leave even more in dark. today, millions of people like robin ledbetter are nervously calculating their chances how likely do you think it is that you're going to need this generator? >> um, i-- like maybe 50%. >> reporter: just north of here, the governor of delaware has ordered a mandatory evacuation of many coastal areas. north of that, on the coast of new jersey, is elaine quijano. elaine. >> reporter: well, chip, this storm could make landfall somewhere between delaware bay and long island sound monday night into tuesday morning, but here in new jersey, the governor has already declared a state of emergency and the weather conditions are expected to begin deteriorating here tonight. >> i'm taking it seriously. >> reporter: james bradley said in 25 years here in p

to get rid of and increase the size of the navy. it depends on whether you feel now is the time to increase defense spending or put it in our economic debt crisis. it's a pretty good distinction. but to what end? the debate was supposed to give you a framework on what the president would do with foreign policy and we didn't get a lot of that. gwen: molly, you've been going out on the actual campaign trail with people who are door-knockers and so on every day. i wonder whether these issues we talk about in our little hothouse in washington come up when people are trying to get voters to though -- show up to vote? >> they do. it's easy to say voters don't care about x, y, or z but voters are smarter than we think and they pay attention and are processing all this in a very careful way. one woman in florida said the reason she's still undecided is she has all the debates on d.v.r. and wants to do her homework. gwen: what? what? that sounds awful to me! >> i know. but there was tremendous earnestness. a lot of the undecided voters are people who legitimately see validity in both can
